Police in Norway have identified a 19 year old man of Somali origin as responsible for the stabbing incident in central London which killed a woman from the United States.

Authorities have said the man is suspected to be suffering from mental health adding there was no evidence to suggest the attack was terrorism-related.

Police believe the attack in Russell Square on Wednesday was “spontaneous”, with victims “selected at random”, the BBC reported.

Speaking at a press conference, the Met’s assistant commissioner for specialist operations, Mark Rowley, said the police investigation “increasingly points” to the attack being “triggered by mental health issues”.
